    Most exam boards have a converter you can use. I know aqa do and I think edexcel do, which boards are you on?
    Edexcel and OCR, but Edexcel is far more important tbh.

    This might help for edexcel, it should update when grade boundaries come out

    And then this for ocr, which should also update when grade boundaries come out...don't hold me to that though!

    Hi guys for those who did as maths I was going through some family issues and it's unfortunate cause I'm a student who works hard and I was predicted high anywayC1 - expect lowest lowestttt 66-67C2- 73M1 - 58 ( really bad day, my morning involved yelling and soothing crying from family ) - it could be much higher depending on the examiner since my mistakes were like making my coefficient of friction negative, copying the mass of one of the masses on the pulley wrong things like that. Hope they go easy on the minusing. Absolutely petrified. It's all I can think about Do you think I'd manage the A?

    I know your looking for reassurance, but tbh no matter what anyone replies you probably will still (understandably) be nervous and unsure. Unfortunately, you will have to wait it out to find out. But, for what it is worth I would be v.suprised if that doesn't get you an A.

    Thought so, thank you! One more question, is it not acceptable to approach a university directly, for a course that isn't in clearing but one where you at least have the grades for? As the courses that I wanted earlier on the week aren't in clearing anymore, so does this mean I can't enquire about them and ask to speak to an admissions officer?
    You can always try - just don't be too disappointed if you get told NOPE

    I know you're joking but suicide isn't really a laughing matter at times like results when people are feeling a lot of pressure and disappointment

    Would you mind elaborating why?
    Formally: Cambridge have a few studies that show that AS and A-Level performance have very bad correlation for the mathematics degree there, even GCSE performance has a better correlation. STEP performance however, has the highest correlation for any subject ever. Something like ~50%.

    Common sense: would you rather distinguish candidates based on a test that consists of sitting down, writing some crap that demonstrates no understanding whatsoever of mathematics and get an easy A* that literally half the candidature get and literally 99% of the maths applicants will be getting A*A*A - A*A*A* effortlessly or a test with which only 160 of your offer holders can get a decent grade and filters the candidature to an reasonably modest level by not only being an extremely difficult test aimed at the top 2% of the a-level mathematicians, that requires actual thought, creativity and mathematical ingenuity but also by allowing admissions tutors to view the actual scripts of the candidates to see their thought process.

    tl;dr an idiot could get an A*A* in maths and further maths, STEP requires actual talent. Cambridge wants actual talent, not idiots.
